7:32am
street. >> reporter: people say they are okay with this idea that the chief is broeting to set up surveillance cameras along -- floating around to set up surveillance cameras along market street. the chief essentially wants to put surveillance cameras up along market street so they can keep an eye on large crowds during evants and parades that take place -- events and parades that take place. san francisco has videos set up in high -- in high-profile places but they don't monitor them. they look at them when they need to. the supervisor and the chief want to give police the schoals they need to re-- tools they need to respond to trouble. one man i talked with a short time ago, said he's fine with more cameras as long as they are used in the right way.
7:33am
>> personally, i would agree with it. for day to day, i don't see the point, it would be a misuse. but for parades. a lot of people a lot of times they -- the police just can't handle it all of the time. >> reporter: in an interview with the san francisco "chronicle" chief suhr said it would be great every time we had a major event we had a command post where you could have video cameras having all of the eyes and ears out there. along with calling for the cameras, they want the security procedures, they want cameras for other events like the beta breakers race and the america's cup. i'm trying to get more information on this plan for more security cameras on market street. waiting to hear back. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, alex. as the legal process begins

7:35am
sfo to tell us how the fur rows are a -- furloughs are affecting bay area flights. >> reporter: so far, the flights seem to be running smoothly. we won't see the full impact for another hour and a half. at 9:00, that's when the bulk of the arrival begins to come in. behind me is the air traffic control tower and that's when fewer controllers will be on. passengers didn't seem to be happy about it. traffic is ramping today because it's the start of the business week. all air traffic controllers must take one day off a week. the faa said planes will have to take off and land more frequently. that would translate to potential longer lines at the airport. joining me is the spokesperson
7:36am
for sfo. can you give me an idea of how many travelers will be out on every given day or? >> what i can tell you, it's about a 10% of reduction. if i'm an air traffic controller, one of my days out of ten is reduced as the furlough. >> reporter: do you have any idea if this will impact the lines? >> i think where we might see some effect is more from the faa perspective. i don't know if it will affect the lines at the airport. but in terms of flight delays, if there's another airport that has congestion issues or staffing issues, even if we're fined locally, we may experience delays to and from the location. it's very much a nationwide issue. >> reporter: it's a juggling act for you. i think one of the things we can expect, there is a procedure we use and that requires an extra controller. not an issue today but if we
7:37am
have bad weather conditions, we might not be able to use that procedure. >> reporter: thank you for joining us. doug yagle, the spokesperson at sfo. around 9:00 we'll start to see things pick up and we'll let you know if we're seeing cancellations or delays up on the board. tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. 7:36. today boeing started to put upgraded batteries on some of the dreamliner yets. by next week, the -- jets. by next week, the batteries should be installed in all 50 dream liners that had been operating. the airlines still have to wait for regulators to give approval. the faa is expected to announce its approval for 787s to operate over the u.s. within the next couple of days. we have more insight into the details and costs into the 49ers stadium in santa clara. fans can anticipate a $25
